Imagine a large crisp cold glass of a lemonade strawberry concoction with an orange twist. Now imagine this mixture of flavors with a green tea base, smooth rich and buttery. That is what you get when you drink Summertime Sunset from Akron House Tea Co.
Akron House Tea Co. is a newer company to me. I’ve tried a few of their teas and have fallen in love with them. So far I’ve had nothing but crisp clean well balanced flavor. I will admit that I think this one is my favorite that I’ve tried.
First off, this tea has a gorgeous bright citrus berry aroma. Literally the aroma makes you drool. I steeped the tea up with water prepped per the recommendations on the pkg. A few moments later, the brew was ready for me to enjoy.
And enjoy I did. Devour may be a better word. This is one of those teas where I just walk around with my mug and don’t even put it down. The first notes you are greeted with are these strawberry citrus flavors that mingle and play nicely with the smooth silky green tea base. The hibiscus in the blend provides a needed contrast with a hint of tartness to calm the lemon tang that is present.
Bright, balanced, vibrant and popping with flavors! Perfectly named and perfectly blended!
I brewed this tea up hot and can only imagine how dynamite this blend would be as a cold brew. Being a huge green tea fan, this one was perfect for me. But I can see this being one of those teas that can be enjoyed by all!

Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun.I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn't bumble the first infusion.
Besides SororiTea Sisters, I'm also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.
